    See DVA headline "Davita Clarifies

    Modality Comments". Looks like medicare won't pay for home dialysis, if I understand the article correctly. This comment IMO could be bad for this stock.

    • Medicare is pushing home dialysis because it is cost effective. New dialysis patients have a 3 month waiting period before Medicare will pay, BUT if the patient begins training for HOME dialysis during that 3 month period then Medicare will waive the waiting period and pay from day one. DaVita is using the NxStage machines and the dialysis message boards are hot w/ buzz about NxStage This is a good buying opportunity!!
